We stayed in this hotel because it is few minutes Walk to Olympia convention Centre , Kensington. Rooms are extreme small but you have every necessary thing in the room. No pool . It gives breakfast to all his guest which was very simple but is enough to go for work .
Stayed at this Hotel for the weekend. Had a lovely welcome from the hotel receptionist who was well presented and checked us in quickly. The room we stayed in was small but very comfortable.WI-FI is £5 a day.You can leave luggage there but that will cost you £5 a day as well.The hotel was very quiet and had a good tv and access to all channels.There was tea and coffee available in the room. The bed was very comfortable and clean. The towels provided were also lovely and clean. This hotel is let down by the room attendants. Such a shame because the other staff seem really lovely. Our room was filthy! Thick dust on all the skirting boards, tablets left at the side of the bed, rubbish in one of the draws, a left over takeaway in the dirty fridge, 3 shampoos in the bathroom but no shower gel, toilet cleaner left in the toilet which at first glance looked like pee! We informed the receptionist who offered to clean the room herself. We declined her offer as its not her job to clean the rooms.We couldn't fault her at all. She was embarrassed and very apologetic. Luckily we only stayed one night. The breakfast room is very small and there's not much room to move about. The breakfast however was good and plentiful. The fresh fruit juice is cold as is the milk. We had a choice of boiled eggs, toast, cerial and processed cheese. There was a good selection of jams,marmalade, chocolate nuttela and butter. The coffee was instant but actually tasted like fresh coffee. There was also PG tips tea available and Galaxy hot chocolate.Check out the next morning was also very pleasant and fast. The young man was well presented and took the time to wish us a good day.
Stayed here for one night last weekend. Room was quite small but ok. Bed comfy and shower worked ok. However room was very dirty...including a left over takeaway in fridge and a pack of ibuproven tablets on floor!!!!!!! Room obviously had not been cleaned. Continental breakfast was ok but not a lot of room in restaurant. The location is excellent and for the price i guess it was ok. Such a shame as it could be a lot netter with just a little more attention to detail.
Stayed here over the Bank Holiday Weekend for Carnival and really wasn't impressed with the standard of rooms, customer service or anything for that matter. Location is desirable, however wifi is not included in the price, breakfast is very poor quality, bread was stale, juice was warm and cheese was off. I stayed in a twin room with my friend. It stunk of damp, ventilation was very bad just wasn't very comfortable at all. Wouldn't advise staying here! Rooms need to be revamped, furniture is very old and outdated not a quality hotel whatsoever.
Me and my friend loved this hotel. Came here to see something at the London Olympia and it suited all our needs. The hotel has a TV, fridge and even a fan on the ceiling. The window opened nicely as well, and it gave us a nice breeze to keep the room cool. The beds were very comfortable, I had a very sleep on them. The only thing was the bathroom was so small. I think the price it's a good hotel and me and my friend thought it was going to be a dive, but it was far from it. I do think sometimes people don't realise that in London, for this price, you are not going to get the Ritz.
1st time we've stayed here for the Great British Beer Festival. For the last 4 years we stayed at a different hotel, but this is more comfortable with a lift to every floor including the breakfast room. The free breakfast is fruit juice, cornflakes or museli, tea or coffee, hard boiled eggs. Will consider it again next year
I recently stayed at this hotel as a place to sleep while London Comic Con was taking place. Admittedly on first impressions the place didn't give me the greatest of welcomes. Upon arriving the woman who was serving check-in on the desk was rather uninterested and did not come across as very friendly. The room was also very tight. I had booked a double bed room and if I had actually come with someone else I imagine the room would have not been very comfortable for two people as there was barely any room around the bed. In the end however I cannot complain. The room was very tidy and clean unlike some other budget hotels I had visited and I still managed to get a private bathroom which was also clean and very well looked after. Also I believe that in fairness to the hotel you have to take into consideration the location which for most of the year is just another part of London so the chances are you are only coming to see something else rather than having an extended holiday. The rooms most likely are only ever used for sleeping before people go spend the rest of the day at an event near by, so the small space of the rooms won't detract too much for your experience. There were also a few extras included that I did not expect the room to have. In addition to the expected TV, the room had a mini fridgeto allow you to store cold drinks during your stay and there was a ceiling fan which was put to good use during my stay. Also the members of staff I interacted with on the future days I was staying at the hotel were very pleasent and were very hepful with any inquries I had. So I put down my first impression down to an off day rather than a regular occurance. However, I disliked the practice of having to hand over your room key when you needed to go out. It's quite inconveinient if you are only popping over to a near by shop but at least the desk is manned 24/7. The local area has plenty of convienice stores near by if you need to buy a few quick groceries while staying there and there is a wide variety of restaurants you can visit as you are only a 5-10 minute walk from Shephard's Bush and Kensington. My only major gripe in regards to the location in my opinion was the road outside. It remains busy through all hours and made it difficult to fall asleep as motors kept passing by in the early hours of the morning. Overall I would say this hotel is one you book for the purpose of having a place to stay overnight while you attend to business near by. In comparison to London prices this hotel is quite cheap and the quality of the room is very good despite being quite cramped. I would defintly use it again if I decided to go to comic con in the coming years.
This hotel is close to Olympia but this is really one of its best qualities.Very tiny room on a very noisy road and the window would not close.The carpet was threadbare and you had to give your key in every time you went out which is a pain.We didn't try breakfast so I can't comment on this.
Loads of terrible reviews about this hotel, but I think some people need a reality check! £44 for a double/twin room with breakfast in London... it's NOT going to be the Ritz with a Michelin chef! If you want a romantic break away, don't book this hotel, but if you want a cheap, comfortable stay after a night out (like we did after a concert) then it's absolutely fine.
The upsides: For £40 for a double room two streets away from Olympia you can not go wrong and our room was very nice and bathroom look modern and brand new. The downsides: the rest of the hotel needs a serious makeover but they might be focusing on the rooms first. Continental breakfast was ok but the dining area is totally overloaded with tables and chairs and there is a large double table obstructing front of the alcove where all the breakfast food and drinks were on hand. Getting to the alcove is very difficult when you have a couple of quite thick Africans (man & wife) sitting at the double table sitting in front of the alcove completely ignorant that others are trying to get to the counter. The amazing thing is that when we arrived they were the only ones in the room and they had picked the most stupid place to sit as it was in everyone's way...... That table needs to be removed from the room and I am sure that the local fire safety officer would agree that in an emergency that place is a bit of a cluttered safety hazard. As mentioned beforehand in other peoples reviews our bed had no mattress protector and the mattress had a good tint of yellow! The white stains on the brown curtains luckily enough turned out to be just emulsion! Cheaper than a Premier Inn but the gain needs to be raised by the hotel owners but would use again if back in the area.
